On June 11, 2015 at approximately 8:50 PM, a St. Thomas Police officer on patrol noticed a vehicle driving with an expired vehicle permit (Validation Sticker). The vehicle was stopped and through investigation, the officer learned that the vehicle was also being operated without insurance. The driver, a 32 year old St. Thomas man, was charged with driving without insurance and with an expired vehicle permit. The male will appear in court at a later date.
The St. Thomas Police would like to remind motorists that the fine for driving without insurance is $5000 for a first time offence. Those who drive without insurance cause all of our insurance rates to rise, especially when they become involved in a motor vehicle collision.
